Lots of Titanium Rain News!!

Well, first and foremost, IT'S OUT TODAY!!!! Yes, the long wait is finally over. Titanium Rain Double Size Issue 1-2 is out in stores TODAY!!

So if you haven't picked it up yet, do so ASAP!! As well, stay tuned for news on our upcoming signing at Rising Sun Productions in San Diego. Josh and I are making plans to do a signing with this wonderful store as soon as 3-4 comes out, which should be in another few weeks.

Second, CBR has just run an interview with Josh on Titanium Rain. It's called "Archaia Forecasts Titanium Rain". In it, Josh talks about what inspired the story and what his goals were in how he told it. It's an awesome interview and I highly recommend that you check it out.
Last, but not least. We've put in our application for a table at the Comic Geek Speak Super Show Convention in March of '10. I know it's a ways away but we're going to start beating the drum now so that people can make plans to head out to PA and come see us. We'll do sketches, have books, patches, and exclusive swag that you can only get from Josh and I. It's going to be awesome!!

Press Release: Who Does What

Due to numerous articles in the comics press containing false or misleading information about Titanium Rain, the creators of the book have decided to step forward and clear up a few things.
First and for most, Josh Finney is both the WRITER and LEAD ARTIST on the book. Along with writing the story, he is also responsible for the panel layouts, digital painting, 3D graphics, graphic design, lettering, and concept art. Kat Rocha's role in the process is as a penciler and flatter. Early in Titanium Rain's creation Josh and Kat had opted to simply list the art credits as being done by both of them. Specifically stating who does which tasks seemed unnecessary. That is until the press repeatedly ran articles crediting Kat for all the art tasks, and on occasion, even credited her for Josh's past body of work as a professional artist.

The truth is, for the last couple of years Josh has been essentially mentoring Kat, teaching her the skills to eventually become an artist in her own right. This is not something Josh or Kat would have wanted to have made public, but apparently the press cannot get it right. Look, we all understand these feel-good "Girls can draw too!" human-interest stories are en vogue right now, but it does not excuse piss-poor journalism.

For the record:
Josh Finney is the lead artist on Titanium Rain. Kat Rocha is the penciler and flatter.

Josh has done past work for Star Trek Enterprise, NOT Kat.

All the Titanium Rain covers are painted by Josh.

The "Digital Realism" style that Titanium Rain is known for was created by Josh Finney, and can be seen in much of his work for game companies such as Spartan Publishing and Rebel Games.

Please of the love of dog, comics press, do your damn homework next time.
